18th September

A still morning and clear skies meant that birds were migrating.  These were mainly Chaffinch with 14 trapped.  Other species ringed include 4 great tits, 3 blue tits, and singles of blackcap, greenfinch, chiffchaff and blackbird. Star bird of the day was a juvenile pied flycatcher.

Other birds in the area included a cory's shearwater heading south.  A whinchat and a lapland bunting were at Whitburn Steel.

It was the Great North Run today and the Coastal Conservation Group manned the lighthouse car park and raised a considerable sum that will greatly help towards the various projects that the group are partially funding.

And lastly but not least, a big WELL DONE to everyone that completed the Great North Run!
